Hire the best book cover designers in the United States


The cover design is your book’s most important marketing tool.


To drive sales, your book’s cover needs to attract the right readers by clearly showing what kind of genre it belongs to. A book for children, for example, will typically include illustrations that anyone can recognize as meant for young readers, and the same applies to book covers in other genres. Beyond illustrations, your book cover designer will also use a number of other graphic elements to show your book’s subject matter, mood, and tone. It’s not as simple as slapping a logo on the cover: this project requires an artistic process, beginning from a consultation with the author, progressing to initial sketches and drawings, and resulting in a book cover design that accurately reflects your book’s value as a product.


To find the right artist for your project, take a look at Reedsy’s book cover designers in the United States and beyond. Have a look at their online portfolios and check whether they have experience working with clients in your genre. On our marketplace, we have a full roster of professional designers and artists with years of experience who have worked with Big 5 publishers to create covers for bestselling books.


To hire one of our United States book cover artists, get in touch with them to discuss your project’s needs, get a quote so you have a sense of the design’s price, and make sure you clearly communicate how fast a turnaround you expect. Sign up today to take the first step towards a beautiful cover.
